This volume presents major new interpretations on the history of watercourses in Babylonia. Building upon the pioneering work of Robert McC. Adams and a follow-up survey of the Kish area by McGuire Gibson, the Belgian Archaeological Expedition to Iraq and the Oriental Institute Nippur Expedition have separately and jointly sought to detail the complex ecology of southern Iraq.
